Our next conference: GCSE Masterclass: Improve your writing skills for GCSE RS with Charlotte Vardy

Religion and Life

    GCSE Religious Studies Workshop
    With Dr Peter Vardy

    .

    Bespoke Event 2021-22

    .

    “Religion and Life” is an intensive one-day workshop for students of GCSE Religious Studies, that has been designed to be run as a face-to-face bespoke event in your school. Combining pacy, engaging lectures with plenty of activities, discussions and debates, “Religion and Life” will bring content related to all four English GCSE specifications to life and help students to appreciate their significance.

    .

    Please note that this is NOT a revision or exam coaching event; no prior-knowledge will be assumed and the aim will be to enrich and extend students’ learning in Religious Studies. Sessions are suitable for Year 10 or Year 11 students – or a mixture of both – and the event works well at any point during the academic year. Some schools have invited the most able Year 9 students to similar events in the past to give them a “taster” of the GCSE and support recruitment.

    .

    Schools will be provided with a rich .pdf resource booklet to duplicate and distribute to each student at the beginning of the event, so that students can fill it in as they go and have a useful record of what they have done for their files.

    .

    Sessions include:

    1. How do Christians make moral decisions?
      This introductory session introduces your GCSE students to Christian Ethics and explores the reasons why there is such diversity between denominations – and individual Christians – when responding to “hot button” issues. Particular attention will be given to how Christians do – and do not – use the Bible to guide their decision-making and the session will end with an activity designed to help students express their appreciation of diversity within Christianity and how Christians use the Bible on paper.
    2. The Environment
      The second session will explore Religious teaching related to the environment and will confront the tough question: are religions partly to blame for climate change and/or the failure to tackle it? This session will conclude with a group discussion.
    3. Animals
      The third session will explore religious teaching about the treatment of animals, including both eating animals and testing on them. This session will conclude with a written activity designed to support students in writing effective 12/15 markers.
    4. Euthanasia
      The final session of the day will explore the difficult issue of Euthanasia. Religious teachings about the sanctity of human life as well as quality of life arguments will be outlined and evaluated and the session will conclude with a formal debate on the motion: “this house believes that assisted dying should be legalised in the UK!”
